Able Sail

COSA continues to offer sailing programs for persons with disabilities. We have been delivering sailing programs for disabled individuals since 1993! With 2 accessible sailboats in our fleet and other supportive equipment, we can accommodate anyone and everyone.

The sailboats that we utilize are a Martin 16 and a 303 Wide Access Dinghy. Both of these boats are excellent choices for our program. The safety aspects are plentiful. From the stability of not being able to capsize - to the wide decks to keep occupants dry. To top it off they are both very fun boats to sail!

The Able Sail program runs from the end of May until mid-September.  We only use fully certified Sail Canada coaches, and have some of the newest, most exciting technology on the market. 

Lessons take place in our protected bay, ensuring safe and fun sailing for every outing.

Lessons can take place as part of our regular Learn to Sail program (Puddle Jumpers, Wind Riders, CAN Sail, Adult, or Family lessons), or on an individual sail basis, with each sail lasting 1.5 hours.  Registering for Able Sail is simple and inexpensive!  Simply call or e-mail Devin to arrange a sailing schedule that works best for you!
